-- obama, bush, bill clinton and george h.w. bush. first to you, michael. how exclusive is this club? >> well, only five people can join it. what's interesting is that we elect the members, they don't, which is a little bit different than most clubs. we think of our presidents as one at a time. we elect them one at a time, we cover them one at a time. we write books about them one at a time. what nancy and i thought is let's pair them up. we all know in our lives that relationships matter. we thought if we held them up in pairs and shined a light on that we'd learn something about the men and the presidency. and we discovered that the club is a place where there are partnerships, there are rivalries, sometimes there's sabotage and there's redemption, too. they all come out of that office with scars and regrets. gwen: and secrets, and a surprising amount of bishopship. >> especially after they've left the presidency. it's almost like they rediscovered politics. it's hard to become bipartisan in the last 15 or 20 years. if you go back to hoover and truman, there were moments where men
hearts bill clinton? he says he has more in common with clinton than obama because. he champions tax rates that romney invest will destroy the family. the only thing they have in common is that clinton once had the job that romney wants, and there's a major effort from keeping kathleen sebelius from speaking tomorrow at georgetown. and what we should do if we really want to reduce the number of abortions in this county trp. we begin with dirty angry money. we have chuck todd with us, and major garrett. the "new york times" reports on a proposal from a republican strategist to dredge up jeremiah wright. the point was to show he really is a radical after all. here is some of the language. our plan is to do exactly what john mccain would not let us do. show the world how barack obama's opinions were misguided. chuck todd, front page placement, the times played this baby big today. >> they did and let's look at it as political strategy. just watch how it consumed a day of the campaign. of the romney campaign. the idea this might come up as a potential ad, and it just shows you why a simp
. plus mitt romney hearts bill clinton? romney said he has more in common with bill clinton than president obama does. really? clinton supports the health care law, supports financial reform and he champions tax rates that obama says will destroy the economy. the only thing clinton and romney has in common is romney has the job that clipt on wants. >>> are catholic conservatives trying to draw liberal comics of what they want. chuck todd's nbc political director and correspondent major gary covers the national journal. the "new york times" wrote a wealthy super pac backer. the reason is to show president obama really is a radical after all. our plan is to do exactly what john mccain would not let us do. show the world how barack obama's opinions of america and the world were formed. and why the influence of that misguided mentor and our president's formative years among left wing intellectuals has brought our country to its knees. chuck todd, front playtime on l placement on left front side of the paper. >> the idea that this might come up as a potential ad. and it just shows you
the trajectory of america in way that richard nixon did not. in a way bill clinton did not. he put us on a fundamentally different path because the country was ready for it. >> reagan, the patron saint of american conservative was a transformational president according to barack obama, more successful than in the recently successful democratic president, bill clinton. when obama said that, the strategy was pretty clear. mr. obama was diminishing the impact of bill clinton and taking a shot at nominating another clinton and trying to appeal to moderates and liberals who wanted their own transformational leader. o praising reagan is part of what is a common trend now. happens a lot presidents controversial become unifying icons in retrospect. the rallying around the retiree becomes selective forgetting. we forget who they were and forget about the things that divided them when they were in office. the nation's 39th president found himself seemingly out of nowhere in this presidential race just a month ago. >> you would have given the order, governor? >> even jimmy carter would have give
capitalism that we will have. >> let's listen to how they tried to use bill clinton against obama. >> bill clinton that the air of obama was over. [ applause ] it's enough to make you wonder maybe it was a personal beef with the clintons but probably that -- it runs much deeper than that. >> e.j., that's just weird. he is trying to get in there on a personal beef with the clintons like no republican would ever have a personal beef with the clintons. >> right. they only tried to impeach him and, you know, it doesn't count that he made hillary and taxes were a whole lot higher under bill clinton or quite a bit higher. so maybe mitt romney has a secret plan to restore the rights despite what he says here. i think any time romney says that he wants -- bill clinton had government right size, he's going to be asked you must support a 39.5% tax rate on upper income people. >> the thing that i particularly love about this is remember back when we were in primary mode, mitt romney, and he was having to defend the fact that he voted in the democratic primary in 1992 and his justification was that he
continues to invoke the name of another former president, bill clinton on the campaign trail. and take a look at this latest mention. >> bill clinton announced that the era of big government was over, president obama tucked away the clinton doctrine in his large drawer of discarded ideas along with transparency and bipartisanship. it's enough to make you wonder if maybe it was a personal beef with the clintons, but probably that runs much deeper than that. >> so president clinton not taking that one lying down, he responded to mitt romney yesterday, look at this. >> a moderate republican friend of mine in new york, who is going to vote for romney, by the way, said, gosh, you know, he said that guy they ought to give him a promotion, he told the truth. >> why does the romney camp think it's a good idea, smart politics to bring up bill clinton's name, unlike reagan, bill clinton is here to respond, he can fire back? >> i actually don't know. i think pandering to bill clinton, someone who is popular with a lot of different demographics, but what it does is it just validates bill clinton a

[ growls ] lucky for me, your friends showed up with this awesome bone. hey! you guys ar
the raising of the issue regarding bill clinton and how close he is to the obama campaign. what was the gist of your argument today? >> well, i thought it was very odd if not amusing that mitt romney has been going around this week praising bill clinton and at the same time criticizing obama, saying essentially, romney shares clinton's values and doesn't share obama's. he is doing that obviously because the polls are showing that in the light of nostalgia, bill clinton is very popular, particularly among those voters romney wants to take away from obama, those male mostly white, mostly southern or midwestern voters, but the problem is that bill clinton really is not somebody who reflects romney's values. i mean i was there. i was in the clinton administration. i was in charge of bill clinton's economictrition team in 1992, before he even became president. and i know bill clinton raised taxes. bill clinton raised taxes in a way that generated a much larger revenue share of the economy from government than we have had since. in fact, right now govern
shell about president bill clinton and secretary of state hillary clinton. did president clinton urge his wife to quit her job now and run against president obama this november? plus, is the obama campaign using threats and intimidation against romney donors. critics say the obama campaign has an enemy's list and a man who says he is on it. first, republicans are ripping into president obama for forgetting the recession. here is what president obama said. >> we have seen a record surplus that was squandered on tax cuts for people who didn't need them and weren't even asking for them. two wars were being waged on the credit card. wall street speculators reaped huge profits by making bets with other people's money. manufacturing was leaving our shores. it was a house of cards and it collapsed in the most destructive worst crisis we have seen since the great depression. and sometimes people more get the magnitude of it. and you saw some of that i think in the video that was shown. sometimes i forget. >> greta: sometimes i forget. bad choice of words or is president obama detached from wh
and revealing purity is a good memory. bill clinton was great. we spent an hour with him in harlem. >> why did you begin the book with him? >> he was so i bought it about his -- e vocative about his predecessors. he said is a presidential library to all of the 41 you came before him. yet the picture of johnson. but he plans to the bookshelf -- >> he points to the bookshelf and says there is my presidential library and from washington through bush. it is of his memoirs and diaries. they all study each other. they all talk about it. it is as though the only people who can understand them are the ones who came before. they devour the letters and diaries. >> george walker bush read 70 -- 17 biographies of lincoln while he was in office. it was in a "times" story. >> i entered bush for a -- i interviewed george w. bush for a different story. i asked him about how his views of his predecessors had or had not changed as a result of his own experience. he said i think differently about all of them. that was not what i expected to hear. >> tell the story about the time george herbert walker bush went t
